hi, i am a 4th dan in shotokan karate and kickboxing, i run Brindley Martial Arts Academy, i love all martial arts, iv competed in points, semi contact and full contact kickboxing. i have also competed in kata, and i find it harder to put myself out there doing kata than i ever did stepping into the cage to fight! lol
Hi People I have been training in Mauy Thai for 31yrs and I have just got my first belt at Goshin Jiu Jitsu. At the weekend I gained my coaching certficate in Dacayana Eskrima. What new thing are giving a go?
With the new judo rule changes I am trying to get tomoe nage into my repertoire to use against bigger players who bend you over. Left harai goshi and uchimata, right tai otoshi. Armbars and the transitions into them from standing. Trying to use a double lapel grip more to make it less predictable.
i do yoga, it is great for stretching, and has decreased my knee pain, and back pain significantly. i used to have to take buttloads of pain meds, but haven't needed them since i started the yoga, about a year ago.

I definitely don't like stuff that involves strikes to the head. Value my brain cells too much. Which is why if I do watch MMA I watch people like Ronda Rousey who does 95% judo.
